Default New Purchase.

After my dad owning two 240ís when I was a small boy and my mum owning a 340 I finally have my very own. Still driving my 2014 XC70 but this will be a project for me. A few little bits Iíll do myself but then it will be going to classic Swede for a redblock turbo engine engine and gearbox. Really happy with it and it still has the original tape player which I will keep. New wheels are on route as well as new front seats and subframes. It has a petrol leak I need to sort. Nothing silly just a fuel line underneath. All in all happy boy.

Welcome to the forum Tonto,

There is nothing wrong with being bearded and grumpy - that is most of us.
